Jiri Teply and Anna Laub (8G)

The plague spread to the Habsburg monarchy. Territories affected in 1713 were Bohemia (where 37,000 died in Prague), and Austria, and the plague also struck Moravia and Hungary.

In May 1713, misfortune struck the family of Jiri and Anna Teply. Daughters Anna, 3, and Dorota, 1, died within three days.

Could it have been the plague outbreak of 1713? Well, yes, it could be. The number of deaths in Polička villages in 1713 is much higher than other years.

But their luck improved. Seven of their twelve children survived to adulthood, including their 8th child Matej (7G).

Births – Jiri Teply and Anna Laub

I haven’t yet found birth records for Jiri or Anna. So we will estimate.

Based on his marriage in 1702 and his reported age of 69 when he died in 1755, Jiri Teply was born around 1680-1686.

Based on her marriage in 1702 and her reported age of 48 when she died in 1729, Anna Laub Teply was born around 1681.

Marriage

Jiri Teply and Anna Laub married February 19, 1702. Jiri’s father is Jan Teply of Pustá Rybná.  Anna’s father is Michal Laub of Kutina. 

Witnesses included Matej, son of Vaclav Teply, and Dorota, daughter of Vaclav Teply.

Residence

We don’t have house numbers. But from various citations, we can determine that Jiri and Anna lived in Pustá Rybná from their marriage in 1702, and then moved to Březiny around 1720.

Later Years

Anna Teply died December 30, 1729, age 48. She was buried the next day at St. Bartholomew cemetery at Pustá Rybná. The register noted that she was the wife of Jiri Teply of Březiny.

Jiri Teply, widower, remarried on February 26, 1734, to Dorota Brokl of Pustá Rybná.

Jiri Teply, 69, was buried March 22, 1755 at Telecí.


Nibbles Extra Credit

I was searching the map for Anna Laub’s village of Kutina, or Butina, or ? It could be Kutiny, 5 km southeast of Pustá Rybná.


But I got distracted when I noticed Teplá Mountain on the map, about 10 km southwest of Pustá Rybná.

Teplá Mountain

Now 782 m may not be a mountain everywhere. But if it’s named Teplá, let’s call it a mountain.

It’s a short 45 minute bike ride from Pustá Rybná, so why don’t you make the ride and take some photos when you’re there.
